Love Poem: Pain Tonight

Pain Tonight

I still can feel the pain tonight,
While yesterday is out of sight
Internal wounds, I cannot see 
Have made me shiver and drown in fright    

My only hope today is she
As I seek a cradle to rescue me
Where do you think if she turns away
Would my salvation and my peace be?

Words and words I failed to say,
A courage submerged by dismay
Has caused an agony I can’t conceal,
And I cannot turn back and play.

Internal wounds I cannot heal
Before the truth that love reveals
Absolves me as self aware
And wise enough to know what’s real
